From my Facebook post the other day:
Blaming Trump for the “most peaceful demonstrations” misses the point, and it’s simplistic.
We’re at a point where people feel the only way to be heard is by making a lot of noise; and the only way to be seen is to burn down a major city in a mask.
The only difference between the mobs is the color of their jerseys.
This isn’t going to go away simply because Trump does–assuming he lives a quiet retirement, yeah right.
With the incoming Biden administration, we’ll the see the return of people who wish to go back to business as usual. They’ll have their hands full with their version of the people who “vigorously entered” the Capitol.
I’m not as depressed and melodramatic as others because I think we live in such stupid and inconsequential times. This era will be like the turn of the 20th century: technical innovation mixed with political mediocrity.
If you think this riot was unprecedented and “not who we are,” then you’re probably too historically illiterate to recognize the photo.Published in
